ive been off stop mo for over 6 weeks now....Longest stretch in the last year.
so.... I finally got around to testing out my armature...these are really rough....and I will definately do a couple more tests before I start sculpting ontop of this bad boy.
things I learned....its hard to animate just a naked armature....I really use the shapes of my characters to dictate the poses rather than the bones. Itll take me a couple of trys to find my groove but Iys there.
also...I threw together a really weak support system for holding my character up during animating. This SUCKS!!!!!!!!!!!! make sure you get some solid character support or animateing is a PAIN in the arse!!!
hope ya enjoy.
